I FINALLY got to see Fiona!!! Well at least part of her…
Unless you have been living in a cave with no access to social media since January, chances are, you know exactly who I am talking about.
Fiona the hippo instantly became famous when she was born on January 24th, six weeks premature. She overcame the odds and is now doing great and gets to hang out in her enclosure with her parents most of the day. She still has to take some afternoon breaks. So if you do go to see her, try to get there early!
We have been experiencing some unseasonably warm weather this fall, and Saturday was the perfect day for a trip to the zoo. This time of year is great because almost all of the animals are out roaming around their habitats. It must have been a little too warm for my favorite, the polar bear! He was not out to play this time. But this just gives me an excuse to go back in December for The Festival of Lights!
Unfortunately, we were ill prepared for HallZOOween and didn’t have costumes. That didn’t stop little man from hitting up every treat stop and catching a sufficient sugar buzz!
My favorite part of the day was getting to feed the giraffes. They are such gentle beautiful animals.
People probably don’t think of the zoo as a place to find good food. If you are ever there and get the munchies be sure to head over to The Outpost and grab a Queen City Burger! It is a huge juice patty topped with bacon, lettuce, tomato and a sweet smokey bacon jam. My mouth is watering just writing about it!
We had such a great day and I can’t wait to head back soon to see the beautiful twinkle of The Festival of Lights.
What is your favorite zoo exhibit?
I’m very excited to be bringing Cincinnati Housewives in the city back!
I will be hosting monthly girl’s night out events across the tri-state area, sharing delicious recipes, teaching you all of my tricks on saving money and introducing you to my favorite travel spots. We will get together at a different venue each month to hang out and have a great time!
